Hericium erinaceus, most commonly known as lion’s mane, is an edible fungus, with

a long history of use in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The mushroom is abundant in

bioactive compounds including β-glucan polysaccharides; hericenones and erinacine

terpenoids; isoindolinones; sterols; and myconutrients, which potentially have

neuroprotective and neuroregenerative properties. Because of its anti-inflammatory

properties and promotion of nerve growth factor gene expression and neurite

(axon or dendrite) outgrowth, H. erinaceus mycelium shows great promise for the

treatment of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. The fungus was well tolerated in

two clinical studies, with few adverse events reported.
